    Pets of the Week

    Loverboy, #464371

    LoverboyHaven't you always wanted a loverboy of your very own? I'm your guy. I am a very handsome buff tabby with white. I'm neutered and four years old, and have a calm disposition. I'm very friendly, but I get a bit nervous around small children, so I think my ideal home would be one with adults and older children. If you are looking for a handsome and sweet companion, come and adopt me today.

    Interested in Fostering?

    Every year, Pima Animal Care Center rescue partners save thousands of at-risk pets, but they can’t do it without people like you who are willing to foster. When you foster, all pre-approved medical care is paid for, so fostering costs you nothing out-of-pocket except for basic pet supplies such as food, toys, etc. Plus, foster care is a temporary commitment (usually a couple months) that makes a permanent difference in a pet’s life! As a foster parent, you offer a place for the pet to stay until he’s adopted. You also agree to make him available for vet appointments and adoption events once he’s ready to find his forever home. If you decided that you just can’t imagine your life without your foster pet, you can always talk to your rescue group about adopting him yourself! Do you have questions? Are you ready to get started? Contact one of our rescue partners today! View all of our partnered groups.
